Default [Q] ICS Kang Wifi Problems?

Hi all,
I am currently using [ROM][KANG]CM9 ICS 10.1 WiFi Preview 02/12/12. My wifi connectivity is fine when using games, or widgets, or apps like pulse or netflix. However, when using the browser, it frequently disconnects after a couple minutes of use, and takes quite some time to reconnect again. Does anyone else have this problem, or a fix? Thank you!

The reason is due to DHCP.

You probably have a Belkin router I guess. Normally this issue happens only because the tablet tends to refresh the automated IP Address given to it. I won't get into techy details and end up giving you a brain hemorrhage, rather the best solution would be

Download that, Launch it, Add to configure, Press Menu, Generate, Done.

Voila. Disconnect no more.

Long story short, Instead of messing up your router with trying to assign Static IP this will hold the current IP address/reserve it so that you don't drop
